material safety data sheets msds

MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS(MSDS)

REFERENCE THAT DESCRIBES CHEMICAL’S CHARACTERICTICS & HAZARDS

MUST BE READILY AVAILABLE FOR EMPLOYEE REVIEW AT ALL TIMES THE EMPLOYEE IS IN THE WORKPLACE

material safety data sheets msds16
MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS(MSDS)
  • EACH CHEMICAL USED IN THE WORKPLACE HAS ITS OWN MSDS
  • EACH DEPARTMENT MAINTAINS A FILE OF MSDS FOR CHEMICALS USED BY THAT DEPARTMENT
  • READ MSDSs CAREFULLY! THEY MAY COME IN DIFFERENT FORMATS
msds information
MSDS INFORMATION
  • Section 1 : IDENTIFICATION OF CHEMICAL
  • Section 2 : HAZARDOUS INGREDIENTS
  • Section 3 : PHYSICAL DATA
  • Section 4 : FIRE & EXPLOSION DATA
  • Section 5 : HEALTH HAZARDS
  • Section 6 : REACTIVITY
  • Section 7 : PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
  • Section 8 : SPILLS & LEAK PROCEDURES
  • Section 9 : HANDLING & STORAGE
trade secrets proprietary
TRADE SECRETS -- “Proprietary”
  • CHEMICALS ARE LISTED IN MSDS, BUT IT DOES NOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH OF EACH ARE IN THE MIXTURE
  • INFORMATION OF CHEMICALS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE TO HEALTH PROFESSIONALS IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
employee training when
